I am a student affairs assessment nerd that specializes in storytelling with data. I frequently speak on topics including data storytelling, building empathy, women in leadership, and student transition.
Storytelling has become a buzzword lately, but that’s only because we’ve realized just how important stories are. They are the vehicle with which we connect to each other and develop empathy. I believe at the core of a good story is truth, and truth can come from meaning found in your data. The connection between data and storytelling is key to building a more truthful understanding of culture, supporting people during transition, and creating transformational experiences.
I believe in holistic student support and empowering students to actively author their learning experiences. I have an MA in College Student Personnel and over 11 years of work experience including 7 years of professional staff management. My primary areas of expertise fall into the following functional areas: assessment & research, digital community, orientation, leadership, student activities, event management, student group advising, and mentoring. I also have experience with residence life, off-campus living, international student services, and career services.
